An Ocularum in the Hinterlands

An ocularum (Plural: oculara) is a magical object that appears as a skull with a crystal placed in the right eye socket through the back of the skull.

They are found throughout the world, usually placed at high elevations upon pedestals. Their purpose seems to be to reveal the locations of magical shards that were previously hidden until the Breach somehow disrupted the magic that had been hiding them from view. Looking through the crystal in the skull reveals the glow of the shards, pinpointing their location.

Involvement Edit

Finding the first shard, regardless of which ocularum you use, will trigger the war table operation Investigate the Shards. Enchanter Renaud finds a scroll that makes mention of the shards, and after doing some research discovers that they may be able to unlock an elven temple in the Forbidden Oasis called Solasan. Collecting the shards enables the completion of several side quests (see Collections for more details), and once all shards have been collected the final door in the very heart of the temple can be opened.

Occcularum House

The gruesome source of the Ocularum

The origins of the oculara are discovered when a large number of skulls are found in the locked house near the docks while exploring Redcliffe Village. Vivienne concludes that the oculara are made by the Venatori from the skulls of tranquil in order to look for something. Cassandra says that she had noticed the disappearance of the tranquil, and laments that she should have looked harder for them. Cole is distressed and says that he would have helped them. He vows to find whoever did it and to stop them. Sera begins saying what happened to the tranquil, then changes her mind and says she doesn't want to think about it.
